In this photo,the dinnng chairs are almost swallowed by water and on the chairs is one mattress...The blocks are to save something from getting soaked but all efforts proved abortive...

    2. Its a pity. Town planning i believe ended in Jakandes time. All the new areas are just free for all. They dont have GUTTERS. A street in an area like this should have gutters on either side of the road and deep gutters inside. But alas. These neighbourhoods sprung up haphazardly, everyone doing their own thing while the town planning ministry was chopping toothpick. Now here we are.

    1. People need to understand that Ogudu gra, magodo gra and Ikeja gra also parts of opebi and an estate can't remember the name around oregun are just as expensive and even more expensive than places in lekki and oniru and I'm saying this as a matter of fact.

  7. hmmmmm it is a pity. You people were just building and building without taking congnisance of having drainage.

    My former colleague that is staying there. What is the name Alambe or what, i wonder how he will feel.

    His own he fishes everytime there is rain in that Ajah that he stays.

    Comfort to you guys. The rain has stopped today. I pray everything goes back to normal.

    Today the traffic was light, am sure most of the people were at home drying their clothes and other stuff

    1. Gbam. Exactly what i said. It is to go back to the drawing board in these areas. And this flood is NOT A NEW THING. It happens annally. Common sense should make people proactive just before rainy season. If government no clear ya canal. Biko call ur neighbours to call their neighbours. Hell call aboki, get anyone. Just get the gutters and canals deweeded, dregded and cleared. Even a little. If everyone went into this frame of mind, it would never get this bad. This is where the central govt system has failed. If people were able to hold their local government chairpersons responsible and suffer them directly ni. They would be performing better. The local governments should have a better role to play than having ghost workers and playing ten ten

  10. God will see them through, but compared to what happens to my family in the early 2000s in PH, the water in our living room was at the knee level, I'm not lying, and that happened consecutively for 4years, and because it was our home, everytime it dried up (takes 4/5 months), we have to go back and clean up. It wasn't funny, or easy, we had to live in a school. Smh. Thank God for life sha.

  18. God will protect you all.
    You see what I was saying about those mocking some areas of nigeria about having erosion. Life is not a bed of roses . Natural disaster can hit anyone . Note: we have properties at the island, so I am not immuned from this.
    My point is, rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those whose mourn. Do not laugh over people's misery.

  25. ......I have seen Videos and Have Read About What Happened To Our People Living In Lekki… The flood is horrible...It is a sad incident that no one should wish for anyone. People Have a Right to Live Anywhere on Earth and Living in Lekki Should Not make you Less or Big of a Human. I have also seen Memes Mocking Our People Living In Lekki. This is Absolutely Wrong; There is no Justification For Mocking Our People Who Deserve Your Empathy and Support at this time of their loss, pain and/or grief. It Could be Lekki’s Loss today, tomorrow is pregnant...It could you, me and anyone out there.
    In times like this, the Nation and her People Must rise above sentiments of any kind and run to the aids of their neighbors. I was a victim of the 2012 Hurricane Sandy That Took Lives and Destroyed Several properties in New York worth Millions of Dollars, Just Like What has happened To Our People in Lekki and Related Communities. I Will never Forget and I can't hold back tears in my eyes as I write…People Flew from all over the country to help. Churches, Mosques, name it, Rose to the Occasion and Our Support. People I have never met and People I May never know again, came and helped us cleaned our homes; provided us water, food, clothes and shelter. The National Guard, the Police, Volunteers, Red Cross Played their part. We had Hot Water In Winter Provided by the Military Tanks Stationed Everywhere...There was the Police Roaming the Street to Prevent Break down of law and order....We had Helicopters rescuing people from the impact of the hurricane…Corporations Provided Free Items and Most Discounted their prices of goods and serves for the period of the hurricane. Hotels were discounted and even the Public Transport System, the New York Subway System, was free for over 3 months.
    This is a Monumental Loss for the Flood Victims. Take a moment to think,...Children will not be able to sleep, Parents cannot go to work, there will be no utilities…..and Everyone under the Sun Should be a part of these Pains... and their loss is our loss.
    Yes, During Hurricane Sandy, The Govt Stepped in, Provided Hotels to everyone Irrespective of your creed, your wealth or your status or even Race. There is a national emergency That Calls for Each and Everyone of Us To Rise In Defense and Support of our People and Families that were affected by the Flood. Whether You are in Abuja, Mainland or Benin, If you can, Join in the Support to provide relief to the Flood Victims. This is also the time Corporations to show corporate responsibilities to the Market Where they Make Billions of Profits. …
    Time to Act is Now…Let Us Empathize With The Flood Victims, Not Mocking Them……To all Who Have been Affected by The Flood, I dedicate Today To You and Be Assured, You WILL RISE UP…. YES YOU WILL RISE AND YOU WILL BE STRONGER THAN TODAY….I WAS ONCE LIKE YOU …..I feel Your Pains …And Your Struggles......
